Birth Of The Blues
recorded by the McGuire Sisters
written by B.G. DeSylva, Ray Henderson. Lew Brown

G                            D7
They heard the breeze in the trees
        G         C
Singing weird melodies
         D7                         G
And they made that the start of the blues

And from a jail came the wail
     G            C 
Of a down-hearted frail
         D7                         G
And they played that as part of the blues

From a whippoorwill out on a hill

They took a new note
                    E7                    A7     D7
Pushed it through a horn till it was worn into a blue note

              G              D7
And then they nursed it they rehearsed it
    G            C       
And gave out the news
         D7                          G
That the Southland gave birth to the blues
